Three patients with fever, exanthem, headache, and central-nervous-system involvement were diagnosed with Rickettsia fells infection by specific PCR of blood or skin and seroconversion to surrogate Rickettsia antigens. Although R. felis's relationship to other Rickettsia species is known and the pathogenic potential of this clade is well documented, R. felis's role as a pathogen has not been fully understood.
